The first three novels in New York Times bestselling author Peter V. Brett's groundbreaking Demon Cycle series-The Warded Man, The Desert Spear, and The Daylight War-set a new standard for heroic fantasy. The powerful saga of humans winnowed to the brink of extinction by night-stalking demons, and the survivors who fight back, has kept readers breathless as they eagerly turned the pages. Now the thrilling fourth volume, The Skull Throne, raises the stakes as it carries the action in shocking new directions. The Skull Throne of Krasia stands empty. Built from the skulls of fallen generals and demon princes, it is a seat of honor and ancient, powerful magic, keeping the demon corelings at bay. From atop the throne, Ahmann Jardir was meant to conquer the known world, forging its isolated peoples into a unified army to rise up and end the demon war once and for all. But Arlen Bales, the Warded Man, stood against this course, challenging Jardir to a duel he could not in honor refuse. Rather than risk defeat, Arlen cast them both from a precipice, leaving the world without a savior, and opening a struggle for succession that threatens to tear the Free Cities of Thesa apart. In the south, Inevera, Jardir's first wife, must find a way to keep their sons from killing each other and plunging their people into civil war as they strive for glory enough to make a claim on the throne. In the north, Leesha Paper and Rojer Inn struggle to forge an alliance between the duchies of Angiers and Miln against the Krasians before it is too late. Caught in the crossfire is the duchy of Lakton-rich and unprotected, ripe for conquest. All the while, the corelings have been growing stronger, and without Arlen and Jardir there may be none strong enough to stop them. Only Renna Bales may know more about the fate of the missing men, but she, too, has disappeared. . . .

These books have brought together an increasingly complex story, adding depth in each volume. I enjoyed the development through back story on characters, and feel like this was the tipping point (or Empire Strikes Back) of the series. I enjoy being kept guessing and both love and hate that I can't get too attached to any characters.

If I hear the word powerful one more time I may scream. Very hard to follow and does not hold your interest very well. Way too much Arabic references for me.

Don’t waste your time! Too much stubborn stupidity of the characters and Homosexuality woven into the serious to the point I want to puke! Nothing against it in real life scenarios but this goes far beyond and if that is possible many other things should of been as well. But no, and that where the stupidity causes the series to deviate from the original path to make this book my last and finale for it isn’t worth going on!

I've listened to all of the previous books also, and rate all of them 5 stars. Great books, tons of action, and a riveting story line. Would love to see this series be the base of a video game! One of my favorite series.
